    Supplier Audit Report

    Supplier Audit Report
    Content:

    Hi All,

     

    We have "Supplier Audit Report" in EBS which helps to identify potential duplicate suppliers.

     

    Similarly, do we have this report in Cloud.

    I have seen Supplier Audit History report in Cloud. But this not provide the information that is captured in R12 EBS - Supplier Audit Report.

     

    Please suggest if we have the Supplier Audit Report in EBS.

     

    regards

    GM

      Hi Mohan,

      Yes we do have similar in ERP Cloud , review below Whitepaper

      Implementing Supplier Audit History in Fusion Procurement (Doc ID 1575208.1)

      Thanks,

      Ramesh

        Thanks Ramesh.

        I have already seen this. The report that Fusion is offering is completely different from that of EBS. In EBS the output of Supplier Audit Report helps to identify potential duplicate suppliers. 

        But the Fusion Supplier Audit History report : provides real-time traceability of any supplier changes.

        So, both these reports are completely different in terms of the output they produce. 

        Please correct me if my understanding is wrong. 

        In absence of any similar report in Fusion, do we have to go for a BI report to see if there are any potential duplicate Suppliers in Cloud.

         

        regards

      Hi Mohan,

      You are right. Audit report in Cloud is meant for each supplier profile's auditing purpose. Regarding your requirement, please help us understand on what basis can you say that the two (or more) suppliers are duplicate?

      Thanks,

      Piyush

        Hi Piyush,

        I have uploaded the screenshot of output of the report which shows the Suppliers having duplicate records.

         

        Please take a look at it.

         

        regards

      Thanks.

      Hi Piyush,

       

      I have now uploaded the screenshot for you to take a look at it.

      Thanks for sharing the report. So, the duplicates that you are referring to are the ones which have very minor deviation in their names. I assume these are user errors and not intended data entry. Is that right assumption?

      We do not have a report that will list such suppliers as we have mechanism in place to ensure we do not have duplicates entered in the application.

      1. TRN, Taxpayer Id or the DUNS number (apart from supplier name) attributes ensure duplicate records are not entered. So if you ensure you are entering values for at least of these in the application you will not run into such case.

      2. Data Quality Management ensures users creating the suppliers, or approvers approving supplier registration requests are notified about potential matches. If users/approvers decide to ignore the match and continue creating suppliers, then that means the suppliers being created are not duplicates.

      Thanks,

      Piyush
